Principal's Weekly Update March 15-19


 
March 19, 2021
 
Good afternoon everyone,
 
We’ve had a pleasant week at ALS regardless of a bump here and there.  Our students brought out their school spirit participating in our Spirit Days. We had everything from celebrity day to old person day. I would encourage you to take a look at our social media sites where we’ve highlighted your children’s sparkling personalities. They are amazing humans! [...]

Principal's Weekly Update


Happy Friday ALS Families! 
Week two of the 2020-2021 re-entry is complete! The nice weather has provided extensive opportunity to smooth student and staff transition to our new protocols. It would seem that as a community we are settling into teaching and learning in our new spaces and ways. We will continue to take each day at a time. As a staff I can share that we are doing everything we can, given the tools we have to work with and the areas over which we have authority and control, to keep all of us safe and able to continue learning in our school.
We started the week with new Homeroom assignments. Provided no additional wrenches are thrown our way, I believe these assignments to be final.  Teachers should have emailed you earlier in the week to introduce themselves to you.
Students have been great in following our new safety protocols. They have been wearing their masks, using their cohort doors and sanitizing as asked and I want to publicly thank you and them for working with us on these elements of re-entry.
On a less pleasant note, we have started to receive community concerns around student behaviour when off campus. I am hoping you can reinforce the importance of being a positive community contributor with your child. We share spaces with our neighbours and we do not want to be seen as a nuisance or irritant in the community. Nobody likes gaggles of teens lounging on their lawn, destroying property, using inappropriate language or showing a lack of respect. Additionally, for our Citadel students, we have also had concerns around ALS students on property at St. Brigid while they are still in session. Our day ends a full hour before and some of our ALS students have been spending the afternoon at St. Brigid while classes there are still in session. This impacts the outdoor space and safety for these CSSD students. Again, if you wouldn't mind, please chat with your child about the importance of being respectful and aware of those around us and how our actions, even unintentionally, can negatively impact others.
 
Reminders – Old and New:
Picture Day
September 21 is Picture Day. Protocols and changes to make this process smoother will come out at a later date.
Overdue Library Books
Any books taken out prior to the March shut down are now overdue. Please return any library or novel study books you might have at home to our Learning Commons. All items returned will be quarantined and properly sanitized before being made available in our collection.
Student Illness
When students indicate to a staff member that they are unwell with any of the symptoms associated with COVID-19, students will be sent to the office and asked to wait in our infirmary for a parent to pick them up. The school will call parents who are then expected to pick up students within an hour. Please speak with your child about this. Students that indicate they have a symptom, but then retract their disclosure once they realize they will have to go home, will still be sent home. It is important that students are honest about their symptoms and they need not worry about missing school. Student and staff safety and well-being is our number one priority at this time.
Students and staff must assess their health daily. If they feel ill, they must stay home, and take the AHS Online Self-Assessment tool to determine if they should be tested.
When your child is ill:
Work through the following self-assessment survey with your child to determine if your child will need to self-isolate: https://myhealth.alberta.ca/Journey/COVID-19/Pages/Assessment.aspx
If your child's symptoms could be caused by COVID-19 or by a known pre-existing condition (e.g., allergies), we recommend that he still should be tested for COVID-19 at least once to confirm that it is not the source of their symptoms before entering or returning to the school. 
Should your child test negative and have no symptoms they are welcome back into the school environment.   Arbour Lake School Council AGM and MeetingsOur next School Council meeting is on September 22, 2020 at 7pm. The meeting will be virtual. We will be using Skype or Zoom and will be sending out the link prior to the meeting time. Please consider joining us for our AGM.If at any time I can be of service, please contact me at nmlisi@cbe.ab.ca. I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Sincerely,Nancy Lisi
